Hello all. New to here. Used to build PC's years ago and was trying to fix my laptop.
I repaired the power jack in the back that broke when the laptop was dropped. Caused it now to power up at all. Now the unit turns back on and goes through the CMOS boot, but it asks what to boot from CD, LAN, HD, etc. I have a feeling my HD isn't working. Could a fall from a coffee table cause this? And what (if anything) would the repair (solder) I did to the power jack have effected my HD from not working.
Any help would be appreciated. The model is an HP ZT1000 with Windows XP.
